    During the question and answer portion of Apple's third quarter earnings call, Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer suggested that Apple will have a "very busy fall," following it up with a statement that he'd like to "leave it there and go into more detail in October."

    Apple is expected to unveil a number of products in the fall months, including the next generation iPhone, the fifth generation iPad, the low-cost iPhone, and refreshed MacBook Pros.

    All of the products on the horizon are expected to include impressive new features, including a fingerprint sensor and an upgraded camera for the iPhone 5S, an iPad mini-style redesign for the fifth generation iPad, and Haswell processors for the new MacBook Pros.

    The company is also rumored to be working on additional projects such as the iWatch, and according to Tim Cook, Apple's catalyst will always be "new products and new services" in both current product categories and "in new categories."

    Apple's iWatch, which has been trademarked in multiple countries, is not expected until 2014 despite the fact that Apple has recently hired a number of new employees to work on the product. "We're working on some stuff that we're really proud of, and we'll announce things when we're ready," said Cook during the call.

    Hopefully something 'revolutionary' on the cards, rather than boring refreshes/updates of existing products...

    That's not the interpretation I give Oppenheimer's comment. He was talking about GM and said he wanted to say more about it in October at the next results call. That doesn't necessarily mean that the products are coming in October. It might be September.

    I like that Apple has gotten a little bit of its secrecy mojo back. I know this is a rumors site, but I still love it when a keynote hits me with something I wasn't expecting. Hoping that this Fall has some mind-blowing stuff.

    So we're not expecting a Retina MacBook Pro refresh until October???? I thought it could be any day now, if you look at the Buyer's Guide…

    Surely the more detail in October relates to the next financial call rather than products? Sure, products can be launched in October, but, I'm pretty sure that comment related to the next call.

    Lol, obviously. Apple has barely released anything the last 9 months. This cramming stuff in the fall plan is kinda dumb but what do i know right? ;)

    He's referring to the next earnings conference call not a product launch.

    As long as the fall includes properly built iMacs.

    "Apple's iWatch, which has been trademarked in multiple countries, is not expected until 2014 despite the fact that Apple has recently hired a number of new employees to work on the product."

    "despite the fact"? Hiring new employees to work on an iWatch recently, indicates to me that it won't be available for quite some time. These new staff can't make something instantly. Unless the new employees are working in the marketing department, I wouldn't be even entertaining the idea of iWatch being a reality until 2014 at least.

    A finger print sensor is not impressive. Maybe the tech improved but HP ipaqs had this back in 2003

    Consider the big jump from ipad to ipad 2.

    IWatch already designed to test the waters this fall.
    But hiring for designers for iWatch2 to really blow the market away.

    Disclaimer I don't really believe this is the case.

    Well at least by Peter saying we will talk more about that in October pretty much confirms September release dats at the latest for new iDevices. But nothing really new here. Its always September.

    He said they will have a very busy fall. What could lead to a busy fall? Obviously the reason that you have a busy fall is because new/updated products come out. Unless he knows about some recovery in the economy that is coming. So, yes he will give more detail in the financial call in October about all the revenue from new products between now and then.

    Beat me to it. Yes: new products BY October, not IN october necessarily. That's why Cook plans to talk about them in the October conference call.

    Hoping for a retina iPad mini, and genius covers for iPhone. That's right - build the keyboard or gamepad right into the cover like the old Versa, and watch a whole new revolution in mobile games.
